Vista Outdoor Hosts Outdoor Mentoring Summit

Vista Outdoor brand Federal Premium Ammunition hosted a gathering of 20 leaders from outdoor mentoring programs from across the country March 4 and 5 at its Anoka, Minnesota facility.  Organized in conjunction with the Pass it On Outdoor Mentors organization and the Council to Advance Hunting and Shooting Sports (CAHSS), the two-day meeting was the first attempt to bring a number of local and national organizations together to align their work with the National Hunter Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation (R3) Plan.


“A central part of our commitment to conservation is to attract the next generation of hunters and shooters who are the backbone of conservation funding in America,” said Ryan Bronson, Director of Conservation for Federal Premium Ammunition.  “Mentoring programs are helping the hunting conservation community reach a diverse population that includes at-risk kids, urbanites, and females that traditionally are under-represented in our population.”
